Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Dr. Elder presented the report. At the May meeting of Senate, the
Admissions Committee stated that it would monitor the process of
restriction of enrolment in the majors and honours programs in Economics
and report back to Senate in the Fall of 1987.
The following summary of selection procedures for majors in Economics
for the 1987-88 Academic Year had been circulated for information:
"In accordance with the proposals approved by the Senate (May 20, 1987)
the Economics Department restricted admission to the Majors program this
year.  The following statistics summarize the process: 9081.
November 18, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee  (continued)
1. Number of students applying to the Majors program: 171
of which - the number of applications withdrawn!; 21
- the number of applications incomplete: 2
- the number of applicants rejected2: 58
Thus new students accepted into the Majors program:      90
2. The minimum standing of students selected for the program was 58.5%.
The application deadline was August 3, 1987, and all students with an
average (calculated on the basis of the best 24 units of credit
towards a B.A., including English 100, Economics 100 and Mathematics
140 and 141) over 58.5% were permitted to enter the Major program.
On August 31, late applications were considered and available places
were filled by late applicants. No late applicants were accepted
with an average (calculated as above) lower than 58.5%.
3. No other criterion was used for the selection of students applying to
enter the program. In particular, since there was not a cluster of
students with an average of 58.5% we did not need to use a second
level of screening.
4. As noted above, any student who had some evidence of previous
acceptance into the Major program was considered to be in the program
- even where the student would not be entering 4th year in September
1987.
Recommendations for future years.
While the application and selection process went smoothly this year there
were a number of minor difficulties which we hope to remedy next year.
1. Originally we intended to consider only students with 30 units of
credit towards a B.A., however, since the Faculty of Arts allows
students to enter their third year if they have completed 27 units of
such credit, we decided that in order to be consistent with the
Faculty's policy we would consider all students with 27 or more units.
1The majority of applications withdrawn (17) were applications by
students who were in fact already in the Major program. As noted below
such students were automatically permitted to continue their Major.
However, students who had been required to withdraw from the University
for a year for academic reasons were required to reapply to enter the
Major program.
2of the 58 applications rejected, 24 were rejected because they did not
have the prerequisites to the Major program; i.e. third year standing in
the Faculty of Arts, credit for Economics 100, Math 140 and 141, and
English 100. The rejected applicants may apply for admission to the 4th
year of the Major program next year. 9082.
November 18, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Recommendations for future years,  (continued)
2. A second difficulty concerned the original July 15 deadline for
applicants. Application forms were included in the registration
packages mailed to all prospective 3rd year students. Unfortunately
many of these packages were not mailed out until early July so that
we decided to change the deadline to August 3, 1987. It is hoped
that next year (a) many students will apply before leaving campus in
the Spring (this year the application forms were not available until
June), and (b) the registration packages will be mailed out early in
June enabling the qreat majority of applicants to apply before the
deadline.
3. In analyzinq the applications it became clear that our selection
criteria is biased against students whose programs are 'on track'
(i.e. who wish to enter the Majors program after spending 2 years
completing 30 units) since there were many students, particularly
amongst the late applicants, who had taken several courses more than
once before passing them. In order to correct this bias we intend to
change our selecion criterion from the average calculated on the
basis of "the best 24 units" to that on "all courses taken excluding
the 6 worst units. However, at least 24 units must be included in
the average, and the omitted units may not include English 100,
Economics 100, Mathematics 140 and 141 (or equivalent)." This does
not change the original spirit of our selection criterion.
4. in attempting to clarify the academic records of applicants and to
assess their current standing in the University we frequently noticed
that students were registered in the upper years of the Faculty of
Arts with no major, and that other students were improperly
classified."

Dr. Tennant drew Senate's attention to the followinq extract from the
Report of the Senate Committee on the Role and Organization of Senate
concerninq co-opted members of Senate committees:
1. Every Senate committee shall be free to co-opt additional members,
whether or not they are members of Senate, subject to two conditions:
(i)  First, a majority of the entire committee must vote in favour of
each individual proposed;
(ii) thereafter the Senate must vote in favour of each individual
proposed.
2. Persons proposed for co-option to committees shall not attend
meetinqs of these committees until Senate has approved of their
becominq members.
3. Co-opted members of committees shall have full voting rights on
these committees.
Dr. Tennant   )  That the recommendations of the
Dr. Evans     )  Nominating Committee be approved.
Carried 9084.

Reports of Committees of Senate  (continued)
Committee on Student Awards
Dr. Cook      )  That the new awards (listed in the Appendix)
Mr. Pearce    )  be accepted subject to the approval of the
Board of Governors and that letters of
thanks be sent to the donors.
Dr. Cook informed Senate that, in response to a request for
clarification, the words "The recipient will be selected by the Awards
Office and ..." had been inserted at the beginning of the penultimate
sentence of the description of the Henri J. Pigeon Bursary in Wood Science
and Industry.
Dr. Wisenthal drew attention to the absence of any mention of academic
achievement in the description of the Dianna Popowich Memorial
Scholarship. In addition, he stated, it seemed odd to have a scholarship
in which the selection is not made by an academic department in the
University and suggested that the Committee should reconsider this award.
It was agreed that the award could be accepted if the minimum academic
requirements needed in order to qualify for an award were unambiguously
stated in the booklet on Awards and Financial Aid.
The motion was put and carried.
Dr. Cook reminded Senate that an award named the Department of
Geological Sciences Bursary, was approved by Senate in February 1987. She
reported that the funds had been made available by Dr. W. R. Danner, who
collects and sells beer cans and pop bottles for refunds in order to
provide a bursary for a student in the Department of Geological Sciences.
In February 1987, the Awards Committee felt that it was perhaps not
appropriate to entitle the bursary "Beer, Pop, Can, Bottle, Deposit,
Refund Bursary", and the Committee 'tidied it up' to read the "Department 9085.
November 18, 1987
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Student Awards  (continued)
of Geological Sciences Bursary".  The Committee has since heard from Dr.
Danner that unless Senate is prepared to name the bursary as he originally
saw fit, he would be withdrawing his money.  The Committee therefore
recommended that the title of the Department of Geological Sciences
Bursary be changed to the "Beer, Pop, Can, Bottle, Deposit, Refund
Bursary".
Dr. Cook      ) That the title of the Department of
Mr. McMillan  )  Geological Sciences Bursary be changed to
the "Beer, Pop, Can, Bottle, Deposit,
Refund Bursary.

Student Membership on Senate
Proposal to revise the constituencies for student membership on Senate
Mr. Fahy presented the following proposal, which had been circulated:
"The A.M.S. Council recommends to Senate that the student
membership on Senate be as follows: one representative
from each Faculty and the remaining five to be distributed
on a per capita basis to the five faculties having the
highest enrolment number with no one Faculty having more
than two student Senate representatives. The distribution
of the five being one to each of the following: Faculties
of Arts, Science, Applied Science, Graduate Studies,
Education."
There are a number of reasons on which this proposal is based. They
relate to constituency representation, direct responsibility, and outside
support or control.
The student Senate positions began in 1967 with membership consisting of 4
at-large senators. This membership has changed over time due to
recommendations to Senate by various bodies up until the revision of the
Universities Act in 1974.
The Universities Act, section 34(h), which reads "a number of full time
students, equal to the number provided in paragraphs (a) to (f), elected
from the student association in a manner that ensures that at least one
student from each faculty is elected:" (Figure 1), was interpreted as one
senator from each Faculty and five members at-large. This interpretation
was not based on any particular reasoning and has thus produced a position
which is redundant. The duties of a student senator are to represent the
interests of all the student body, "assist the constituencies in promoting
whatever academic reform is advocated by those constituencies" and also to
represent the concerns of Council to the Senate. (Figure 2) These general
duties are the responsibility of every senator and having an at-large
position seems to completely overlap the position of the student Faculty
senator. 9088.
November 18, 1987
Student Membership on Senate
Proposal to revise the constituencies for student membership on Senate
(continued)
" Each student Faculty senator has a direct link to their constituency by
involvement in their faculty council and thus has a direct responsibility
to their constituents. This contact is facilitated by the fact that they
are known within the Faculty and are therefore easily approachable by any
constituency member to hear their views or concerns on an academic issue.
Being a member of a particular constituency gives the senator a form of
structure in that they regularly report the activities of the Senate to
their faculty council. This structure encourages the Senate members to
represent their constituency to the best of their ability.
The at-large position lacks the attributes associated with a student
Faculty senator. There is no direct constituency in which the at-large
member can report to nor do they have direct contact with an implied
constituency. The repercussions of this indirectness is that the
individual holding the position has no direct incentive from the student
body to properly represent them and therefore no direct responsibility.
If a senator does not have some sort of direct responsibility to their
constituency and there is no outlet for the constituency members to
encourage the senator to better represent them if he/she has begun to lose
interest in his/her position then no control can be exerted on the Senate
member.
Although the position has existed for some time it was an interpretation
by the Registrar's Office and was not based on any clear reasoning. The
extra representation will be better used by the Faculties where a sense of
structure and control of the position can be exerted by the faculty
councils."
Mr. Fahy      )  That the student membership on Senate
Mr. Pearson   )  be as follows:  one representative from
each Faculty and the remaining five to be
distributed on a per capita basis to the
five faculties having the highest enrolment
number with no one Faculty having more than
two student Senate representative.  The
distribution of the five being one to each
of the following: Faculties of Arts, Science,
Applied Science, Graduate Studies, Education.
Mr. Fahy stated that he felt that student senators should be allowed to
decide in what manner students are elected.  He also stated that it was
his understanding that, if warranted, students elected by constituencies
could be removed from Senate by the student faculty council associations
with a two-thirds majority vote, whereas no such provision applies to
at-large students.  The Chairman stated that this assumption was incorrect. 9089.
November 18, 1987
Student Membership on Senate
Proposal to revise the constituencies for student membership on Senate
(continued)
During discussion of the proposal, concern was expressed that there was
an underlying assumption that people from various constituencies represent
those constituencies on Senate.  It was felt that members are elected to
represent the interests of the University at large.  Concern was expressed
that the recommendation had come from the A.M.S.  It was pointed out that
elections would shortly be in progress and it was felt that students ought
to have more notice of such a change.
After further discussion, Dr. Tennant proposed that an ad hoc committee
be established to look into this matter.
Dr. Tennant   )  That the proposal to abolish at-large
Mr. Pearce    )  election of Student Senators be referred
to an ad hoc committee, consisting of
equal numbers of Student Senators and
other members of Senate, which shall
report to Senate in January 1988.

The following proposal from Vice-President Birch, Chairman of the
President's Task Force on Liaison, Recruiting and Admissions, had been
circulated with the agenda:
"Occasionally a department allows a student to enrol in a specific
university course while still enrolled in secondary school. Such a
request is handled on an individual basis and the degree of formality 9090.

(i)  Concurrent Enrolment Policy for U.B.C.  (continued)
"varies. However, students permitted to take UBC courses are not granted
credit on successful completion, nor are they granted advanced credit at
the time of admission to UBC as undergraduate students.
The governing policy statement is found on page 14 of the 1987/88 Calendar
(Senate Minutes, May 23, 1979, p.7197):
Advance credit is not given for subjects taken by an applicant prior to
the applicant's graduation from secondary school. However, advanced
placement may be given where appropriate. These provisions apply to
appropriate subjects with high academic achievement on the Advanced Level
(G.C.E.), Principal Level (H.S.C) or Higher Level (I.B.).
Except in special circumstances no student under the age of sixteen is
admitted.
As a result of a review of policies in other universities and extensive
discussion within the Task Force, we are forwarding the attached
recommendation for consideration by Senate. I will move its adoption with
the expectation that Senate will refer it to the Senate Admissions
Committee for consultation with Faculties. We would hope that it could be
placed before Senate for action early enough for inclusion in the 1988/89
Calendar.
It is our expectation that the recommendation will be referred to the
Senate Admissions Committee and that the Senate Admissions Committee may
consult with Faculties. We would hope that the matter can be placed
before Senate for action early in 1988.
Recommendation:
That limited numbers of gifted students who are enrolled in grade eleven
or twelve in a B.C. secondary school be admitted to the University to
pursue "Concurrent Studies" as unclassified students. Such students will
be given the opportunity to complete a course or courses prior to
secondary school graduation. Credit earned may later be applied towards
an appropriate degree at The University of British Columbia.
The following conditions will apply:
The applicant must have a superior academic record.
The applicant must be enrolled in a B.C. secondary school at the grade
eleven or twelve level, in a program that meets regular U.B.C. entry
requirements.
The applicant must have the written recommendation of the secondary
school Principal.
The applicant must have the written consent of the parent or legal
guardian if under the legal age of majority on the opening day of
classes. 9091.

Other business
(i)  Concurrent Enrolment Policy for U.B.C.  (continued)
" The applicant must have the support of the Dean of the Faculty for the
courses in which he/she plans to enroll.
Admission will generally be limited to one academic session, however,
this may be renewable with the continued support of the school Principal
and the faculty Dean.
Students in Concurrent Studies will be treated as regular students in most
respects except that they may not register in a full range of courses and
their eligibility to register is valid for one academic session only
(unless renewed as per above). Standard transcripts will be issued and
fees and deadlines will be as for regular students.
The above policy will also apply to students who have enrolled in
Concurrent Studies at recognized post-secondary institutions prior to
secondary school graduation. Such students may be considered for
recognized transfer credit towards a degree program subject to degree
requirements within the Faculties."
Dr. Birch     )  That limited numbers of gifted students who are

The University of British Columbia.
Dr. Elder read to Senate a statement that she had received from the
President's Task Force on Liaison, Recruiting and Admissions, which states
that policy recommendations will be referred first to standing committees
of Senate and finally to Senate as a whole.

(ii) Advanced credit for advanced placement and International Baccalaureate
courses

(ii) Advanced credit for advanced placement and International Baccalaureate
courses  (continued)
"As a result of extensive study within the Task Force and the canvassing
of departments, we have moved to collate information on existing
departmental policies with regard to exemptions and advanced placement for
IB/AP courses and to ensure that it be publicised to the schools and
included in the Admissions Guide. This falls within current University
policy.
We are forwarding the following recommendation for Senate consideration
with the expectation that it will be referred to the Senate Admissions
Committee and that the Senate Admissions Committee will consult with
Faculties. It is our hope that the matter can be placed before Senate for
action early in the new year.
Recommendation:
That Senate approve the granting of credit for an appropriate level of
achievement in Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses
taken prior to high school graduation and that responsibility for the
assessment of the appropriateness of a course and the level of achievement
required for credit be determined by the department concerned.
NOTE: The Task Force obtained information and material about AP and IB
from the organizations concerned, surveyed departments, consulted other
institutions and sent representatives to a regional conference.
Documentation is available for review by members of Senate and other
interested parties."
